Galen & Gateway to Medicine
Galen is considered to be the greatest doctor of the Roman Empire. Meet the medical researcher whose work and writings were the standard authority for 1300 years. One day some of Galen’s theories of human physiology would be corrected, but the foundation of all his work, a respect for the unity of the human person in body and spirit, would be handed on—as he himself had received it in the Hippocratic tradition. An interesting title to add to your anatomy studies. 131 pages, paperback, 5½”x8½”.
